Eighth Grade Squad Avenges Earlier Season Loss
After dropping three of their last four games, Coach Denver Word’s eighth grade CCMS Raider basketball team gained some momentum last Thursday, defeating visiting Sebastian 50-41.
CCMS Raider eighth grader Tyler "Chip" McDaniel drives in for two of his 36 points during the Raiders' victory over Sebastian.
Despite being beaten by Sebastian earlier in the year, the Raiders raced out to an early 11-8 lead after one.
Both squads traded buckets throughout the second, as the Raiders held on to a three-point lead at the half.
Tyler “Chip” McDaniel scored eight of his team’s ten points in the third, as the Raiders claimed their biggest lead of the night at nine, 34-25, through three.
The margin was too much to overcome for Sebastian, giving the Raiders the 50-41 victory.
McDaniel led all scorers with an astounding 36 points off 13-20 shooting, also grabbing team-high seven rebounds.
Pivots Ryan Holland and Travis Mills pitched in six points apiece, while Corey Robinson added an additional two points in the win.
7th Grade Game
Coach Jimmy Dezarn’s seventh grade Raiders extended their winning streak to five with a dominating win over Sebastian Thursday night.
Ty Lyttle paced the seventh grade squad with 15 points, seven rebounds, and five steals.
Wes “Sunshine” Wolfe poured in 11 points and seven rebounds, while Blake Smith, Billy Wilson, and Josh Vallance netted six points apiece.
Travis Williams chipped in four points, as Adam Holland and Adam Smith recorded two points apiece.
Playing his first game this season after recovering from a surgery to repair a broken collarbone, Nathan Sizemore scored two points, while Nathan Gray rounded out the scoring for the Raiders with an additional point.
